As for prices, while the entry level, relatively more affordable 21.5-inch iMac will set you back by $1,299, you will need to pay $200 more for the 4K version of the model in the same screen size. Apple has already rolled out its all-new APFS file system to iOS, now it's coming to Mac.

Apple has provided a sneak peek of iMac Pro today. The 21.5-inch model now can be configured up to 32GB of RAM, while the 27-inch goes up to 64GB, twice what had previously been offered.

Apple has also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor.

Apple has updated its iMac line with up to three times more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3, faster storage options and brighter Retina displays, and added a Retina Ultra HD display and discrete graphics to the US$1,299 21.5-inch iMac. Well, things are definitely looking different now because the company has unleashed what it claims is the fastest Mac that has ever been made.

The iMac Pro is also not short on ports, with it sent to feature four Thunderbolt 3.0 ports and a 10GB Ethernet port, all to aid rapid data transfer and connectivity. With its new thermal design, the device has a more efficient cooling capacity without getting away from similar thin iMac build.

The minor updates to the MacBook Pro 2017 were expected beforehand and critics feel that Apple may have done well to consider some other additions, Tech Crunch reported. The new iMacs come with Intel Kaby Lake processors and also include memory boost.

To recap, Apple announced the new MacBook Pros back in October past year. Meanwhile, the 27-inch 5K model will have a choice of Radeon Pro 570, 575, and 580 graphics cards, topping out at 8GB of VRAM. That's a price not many professionals will be able to afford or even be willing to pay, especially for a Pro computing device that still doesn't give what they've been begging Apple for: flexibility.

The updates are definitely welcome, especially on the MacBook Pro front, so if you've been waiting to snag a new Mac for months, now might be the time.

Apple's announcement on Monday comes two months after exec Phil Schiller said that the company was "in the process of completely rethinking the Mac Pro". Starting at $4,999, its the most expensive and powerful computer Apple has made.
